design and craft by RIMAUMANJA

Dragonflies and butterflies are two of my favorites. The colors are beautiful and always give me the impression of something magical and ethereal.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to make the herringbone weave technique and apply this technique to create the dragonfly pendant.

You can choose to craft this pendant using the same size beads and wires or to use your own bead and wire preferences.

Importantly, before you begin to craft out this project please read thru the whole tutorial. This will help you to get the rough idea first on how this dragonfly takes form.
